Work boots.

I'm not a skater, but my younger brother is. He says he actually prefers chucks (Converse), because it's like wearing nothing, so he gets more versatility on the board. I can't imagine it's very comfortable, but it all comes down to taste, right?

I see the plusses of that, but I bet it hurts when the board smacks right through those thin little things.

I happen to mainly be a Vans man myself.
Fallen make some pretty decent shoes too.

connies will last one skate session.

then they will be barely any cavass left hanging on.

globes are good,
adio's are better,
fallens are current favourites of most people

This is what I wore when I skated.

..That could be why I only skated for about five and a half seconds, fell off, and never tried ever again, though.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

when skating, its all about personal preference and style. Wear something that feels comfortable, and has some decent grip on it. other than that, its all about what you feel looks the best...

all the best.

I used to skate, don't anymore but still wear skate shoes because i find them really comfy.

I swear by Lakai and DVS, both look good and to me are the most comfy.
#14
Globe are awesome. Personally I think skate shoes with a round front insted of stitching last longer because they tent not to rip. I have some recently got some vans and they're turning out alright.
#15
Osiris D3's...........Probably the most comfortable skate shoe ever made.

Don't think they make them anymore, but whenever a pair appear on e-bay in my size I can't resist buying them....
#16
Look man, I've been skating for 7 years and I've had pretty much every brand of skateshoe there is, and I can tell you that they are pretty much exactly the same, same goes with boards, a board is a board, there are wood companies that make the same boards for 5 different brands.. So don't just look for a particular brand that people say is the best, just take what is the strongest and last the longest.

Varial, of those two anyway, no question. I'm on the Emericas at the moment, but it just goes with whatever's going cheap for me, there's no point spending lots on skate shoes, because at the end of the day they're never going to last long, except perhaps things like Adio Kennys, but I like to be able to feel the board at all through thenm.

Lakai make the BEST and most durable shoes there are

eS accels /end thread :P. They are possibly the best pair of skate shoes i've had.
#33
Get some ****in, TNT 2 Vans. They look sweet and they are nice and light. Or else check out some Fallen's, strong, comfortable and look great.

When I used to skate, I always wore a pair of circas. Dunno why; they just seemed right.

#35
ya man for durability get some emericas the best thng you can do is look for shoes with triple stitching and lather or that super suede **** that stuffs pretty strong. as for anyone saying boards and shoes are created equal they aint. ya some boards use the same wood as other boards but think about the new blind decks or the new almost decks DEFINATELY not the same same goes for shape. but for shoes emericas, c1rcas, eS is pretty good to the accel plus

Try looking at some I-Path shoes. Most of them are hemp and some come in rasta colors.

I had a pair of ES's that skated like a dream.
Fallen shoes are very nice for skating as well. (the trooper)
I have a pair of Scheckler's now and they are very comfortable for casual, but suck for skating.

My favorite pair of shoes ever though were the Reynolds 3 by Emerica.
